    i told my friend to bring me back the strangest thing he could from japan. so he brought me these!

    i tried one, and it was freaking disgusting. like a donut, with some purple goo in the middle, and an octopus printed on it. i had to spit it out and promptly cleanse my mouth with beer.

    so...what the heck is this thing supposed to be?!

    The front of the box says "Osaka Style Takoyaki Flavored Rice Cake" from what I can read.

    Whats a Takoyaki? They are pretty much like Octopus Balls. Its really good.. it is like a snack food they usually sell on the streets and in markets.

    Real Takoyaki rules.. but thats a snack.

    When you say octopus balls, you mean in kinda the same sense as meat balls, or prawn balls, or do you actually mean... :eek:
     
  12. Mmmm...octopus balls. Yes, they should have a real chunk of octopus tentacle in the middle. I like 'em.

    this was definitely not real octopus anything in the middle. it looked like 20 year old grape jelly, and tasted worse!!!


    i've had octopus plenty of times, and this wasn't even close.
